Dahlia my husband’s vs. choice

Hello! My husband Ben reallly loves the name Dahlia for a girl. The thing is, I’m not too keen. It’s a bit too airy fairy for me and if I was going in that direction I’d go with Alice (whimsical but still classic). Also, it reminds me of the murder of Elizabeth Short aka the Black Dahlia. It was literally the first thing I thought of when he said the name. Do you have any suggestions of other names he might love with that whimsical quality (minus the murder)? Thanks guys~ Violet

Genie's Mailbag

Carina in Canada
Dear Genie, I need you to help me find a Greek name for a girl. I've already used Theodore and Sebastian for her siblings. But every other Greek girl's name I see is either too pretentious, hard to pronounce, or just too popular now. The only name I can picture using is Caroline, but it's not Greek!
Baby Name Genie:
The Greeks would name her Charissa Zoe. Then, they would stuff her in a wooden horse and give her to the Trojans. So, my advice would be to borrow the name but not the rest of their tactics.
